I have been having trouble with my internet connection for sometime and figured that it was time for me to upgrade my internet speed with the cable company. I have a wireless printer and since I have been getting an intermittent signal, my printer will not stay connected and makes scanning / printing almost impossible. If my signal were to break while trying to scan, so would my scanning process…ugh! I finally called my cable company and called them out to check out my connection. Here’s the great part: my modem was old and outdated. No that is not great, but I was given a new up to date modem and now my internet flies again.
Granted, I wish that my cable company would have notified me of the company wide upgrade so that I could have done this a year or so back when the upgrade first went in affect. The technician said that my modem was going straight to the graveyard so I had her check to make sure that my DVR was also the newest system in place. So, thinking back, when was the last time you received a new cable modem from your company? Give them a call, maybe they can boost your speed with a free upgraded internet modem.
Good Luck, we all have a need for internet speed!
